We were blown away by last year’s Stems of Hope gala and we called it the best Charity Gala of 2013 (also amazing was Stems of Hope 2012). So this year’s 5th annual Stems of Hope gala helped to continue propelling awareness and funding for this amazing cause in a big way.

Rhythmic beats reverberated continuously across the acres of fields at Downsview Park over the course of two days at a mega music festival known as VELD.

The Civic Holiday long weekend in August is reserved for many things: hitting up the cottage or some patio weather, enjoying a relaxing Game of Thrones marathon, catching up with friends and family or simply just catching up on sleep.
